Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring component of the body that acts as a cushioning and lubrication agent for our joints, nerves, hair, skin, and eyes. It is also a very powerful moisturiser with the ability to hold up to six times its weight in water. Hyaluronic Acid helps to keep the skin hydrated and gives skin a softer feel, and more youthful appearance.
As the body ages, this causes the natural levels of hyaluronic acid to decline over time, leaving the skin dry and vulnerable. Hyaluronic Acid Powder will assist in maintaining the skin’s natural ability to attract and retain moisture and will help your skin feel fresh and hydrated.
This powder is ideal for cosmetic moisturising preparations, anti-drying milks, sensitive skin formulations, anti-aging treatments and body lotions. Our Hyaluronic Acid Powder is derived from an all-natural fermentation and purification process. It comes pre-packed into 10g sachets.
The product is still classified as natural and used in natural and organic cosmetic manufacturing.
How to use this item:
1. As a moisturiser
Dissolve 1g of HA in 99g of water (distilled or demineralised) and shake vigorously by hand or blend, the mixture will thicken and once fully dissolved you will be able to use the mixture on the face and body (use the mixture within 2-3 days until preservative is used). Once dissolved, use the product after cleansing, and while your skin is still damp
2. Make a customisable Hyaluronic Acid Serum
Alongside with Vitamins B & C, Hyaluronic acid can be used to make customisable serums using the same method as above. However, when mixing with these ingredients, a preservative must be used to extend the shelf life. You can use the following preservatives, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol & Ethylhexylglycerin (these are just some of the preservatives you could use and serve as examples, not advice)
